Hey - i am 26 years old and i live in the Uk. I discovered Konad around October 2010 , and my bank balance has yet to recover. i have since collected a very large collection of fauxnads and Konads. the goal for this blog is simple - (1) Further explore the world of nail art stamping. (2) To keep a record of all my experiments with stamping. (3) To show you the potential each stamp has. (4) To show you that you don't have to be a 'Konading' expert to have fun! =)

M56 + 'A Blue Dream'.

Hey Ladies!

I hope your all having a great week! =) .

For this weeks Manicure..I wanted to try something different.

* Caution! - Ive never tried French tip Manicures before...So be prepared for something different. *

For this Manicure i used my M56 Konad Plate...and..

- Barry M Nail Paint - Pale Blue #306.
- Konad Special Blue Polish.

Doesn't this look really girly and cute!

I may be a French tip virgin...and i might not have the nail length to pull this plate off...but... i think I've semi mastered how to position and stamp these plates...I hope =-/.

For swatching my M56 plate - i used:

- Avon Matte Nail Polish - Violetta.
- Konad Special White Polish.

Its a cute plate! ...i think i may need to grow my nails though before using this plate again lol!

I hope you enjoyed reading this.



  1. That is soooo cute! I cant wait to be as good as you with my stamping!

    /Blush - thank you for your kind comments hunny...though i'm no expert =-/

    But i'm glad you liked it...this mani was definitely out of my comfort zone


  3. I love it, especially the double stamping-- looks great :) That blue is gorgeous!

    As for the tip plate-- just stamp half of it on the end of your fingernails instead of the whole thing, makes your nails look longer ;)

    Aww thanks hunny! and super thanks for the tip..i only did the full tip on my swatching photo to show it whilst be tested..However i will totally take that tip on-board for the next time i use French tip designs..I love short nails too much - so you've made me smile =))) thank you xxx
